Multilateral Regional, and Sectoral Developments (Late 1990s)

(p.138) 6 Expansion
The Multilateral Investment System and Multinational Enterprises

Thomas L. Brewer

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the expansion of the international investment regime and the new agreements that were added to the already existing array of bilateral, regional, and multilateral agreements. It also examines the role of international agencies such as WTO and OECD in the development of the investment regime. It discusses the emergence of investment issues on the active agendas of both WTO and the OECD, which brought a series of differences — not only about substantive provisions concerning liberalization, investment protection, but also ‘forum’ issues about the appropriate arenas for negotiating further investment agreements.

Keywords:   investment regime, bilateral, regional, multilateral agreements, WTO, OECD, liberalization, investment protection, investment agreements
